Goshka Macuga

This exhibition from 24 May to 4 August deals with the special connection of the Kestner Society with the Bauhaus

In exhibitions by the artist Goshka Macuga (*1967 in Warsaw, lives and works in London), visitors are often taken by surprise, for example by androids that portray human history, by sculptures of influential thinkers, or by huge tapestries that depict supposed truths. Kestner Society is also concerned in the broadest sense with the acquisition and transmission of knowledge in historical and social contexts: On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus, Macuga is following the legacy and field of activity of the ideas of the historic Bauhaus, the most important school of architecture, design and art in the 20th century. As an artist, she repeatedly slips into the role of historian, curator and designer. Her artistic practice is based on historical research and archive research, which she translates into installations, sculptures, textiles, architecture and design. The artist deals with the special connection of the Kestner Society with the Bauhaus and immerses herself in our archives. The core idea of the interdisciplinary nature of the Bauhaus is also reflected in the diversity of its media, ranging from textile design to furniture. Since her participation in the Venice Biennale 2009 and Documenta 13 (2012), Goshka Macuga's works have been presented in numerous international and national institutions, among them: Neues Museum, Nuremberg (2018), Witte de With, Rotterdam (2017), Fondazione Prada, Milan (2016), New Museum, New York (2016), Martin Gropius Bau, Berlin (2016)
